An En Plein Air Easel for Every Painter

Four thoughtfully designed easels to fit the needs of plein air painters.

Introducing the new Pastel Easel. It is unlike anything else on the market. Built especially for outdoor use and travel, it features our exclusive pastel palette tray which hold your pastels securely.

Created especially for outdoor use, En Plein Air Pro’s ‘Advanced Series’ Oil and Acrylic Easel handles canvas panels or stretched canvas up to 12” x 16” or down to 6” x 8” (the most popular range for outdoor painting).

For the watercolorist we offer the 'Advanced Series' Watercolor Easel, which features our exclusive watercolor palette shelf with cover, and the 'Traveler Series', a compact setup that easily fits into a backpack. These easels can accommodate sketchbooks and paper up to a 1/4 sheet size.

Super Light Weight

All our systems, including easel and palette shelf, the tripod, collapsible water pail
and bag to carry it all in, weigh only 8.5 lbs!
